Advanced praise for The Sky Is Everywhere:

“WOW. I sobbed my eyes out and then laughed through the tears. I have not fallen in love with a story and its characters like this in a long time. Stunning, heartbreaking, hilarious. A story that shakes the Earth.”

—An Na, Printz Award Winner and National Book Award Finalist

“Okay, I admit it. I’ve got a huge crush on this book—it’s beautiful, brilliant, passionate, funny, sexy and deep. Come to think of it, I might even want to marry this book.”

—Sonya Sones, author of What My Mother Doesn’t Know

“Full of heart, quirky charm, and beautiful writing, The Sky Is Everywhere simply shines.”

—Deb Caletti, National Book Award Finalist and author of The Secret Life of Prince Charming

“Jandy Nelson’s story of grief somehow manages to be an enchantment, a celebration, a romance—without forsaking the rock-hard truths of loss.”

—Sara Zarr, National Book Award Finalist and author of Story of a Girl and Sweethearts

The Sky Is Everywhere evokes the intensity of desire and agony of heartache with breathtaking clarity.  This beautifully written story will leave an indelible impression upon your soul.”

—Susane Colasanti, author of When It Happens

“An addictive, romantic, heartbreaking and wise tale of one girl’s epic loss—and equally epic self-discovery. Seriously, stop reading this blurb; start reading this book!”

—Gayle Forman, author of the NY Times Best Seller If I Stay.

“Jandy Nelson (remember that name), has written a YA novel with the best voice I have read since Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak.”

—Jane Yolen

The Sky Is Everywhere is the kind of book you don’t just read, you live. From the very first page, I fell deeply in love with its wonderfully kooky characters. In quiet moments I can still hear Lennie’s funny, poignant voice whispering in my ear. A remarkable debut. Wish I’d written it!”

—Sarah Webb, Irish Independent and author of the Amy Green series
